  Rhynchelytrum neriglume - Ruby Grass
 
Rhynchelytrum neriglume
Rhynchelytrum at John Greenlee's Malibu farm
 
This evergreen clump forming grass from South Africa was called "one of the showiest of the small flowering grasses" by John Greenlee in his Encyclopedia of Flowering Grasses. From the 1 foot tall dense tufts of thin gray-green leaves emerge clusters of ruby pink flowers in late spring and continue through mid summer; spent flowers are still attrctive into winter. Great back lit. Drought tolerant when established.
